When you are craving the taste of FRIED CHICKEN but you are trying to “cut back” on calories…this is a really good recipe to try.  Now it won’t be the same as Grandma’s Sunday Fried Chicken, but it will come close!


Oven “Fried” Chicken


1/2 cup sour cream

1/2 cup plain yogurt

1 Tablespoon lemon juice

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

2 teaspoons minced garlic


1 teaspoon celery salt

1/2 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper

1 teaspoon dried parsley

1/2 teaspoon ground pepper

10 classic melba toast squares, ground fine in mini food processor


4 thin chicken cutlets


In a mixing bowl, combine the sour cream, yogurt, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce and minced garlic.  In another bowl combine all of the spices and the ground melba toast.

Dip the chicken cutlets into the yogurt mixture and then generously sprinkle each side with the spice mixture…coat well!  Set each coated chicken piece on a baking sheet lined with a Silpat mat…or heavily sprayed with cooking spray.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for 40-45 minutes.


Bone Appetit!
